It has been proven that some of the teachers and staff in this school are prejudice. This is from personal experience of having two children of African American Decent in the school and dealing with the same school for over 12 years. It seems as if exceptions are made if you have the right skin color and it is sad that this day in age children even have to deal with this from so called teachers who are there to uplift and teach your children. My son was in all honors classes at this previous school now he has been labeled as needing special attention due to his inability to learn. Very odd that this could change in just 2 months

Friendship Jr High is a great school with great teachers and environment. This school offers accelerated programs as well as Summer Programs specially designed by the Principal, for all the students. My son and daughter both went to this school and loved being there.

I always felt safe having my kids attend this school and district. Great faculty, and well disciplined courses. They also offer students a more challenging environment with accelerated classes for Math, Reading, and Language Arts. Great junior high school for all students!

My child is new to this school and I am so happy I picked Friendship for him! The teachers are really involved with the students and they are willing to take that extra step. I do not worry anymore about fights anymore. Thank you Friendship!

A great school, I've learned much from going there, and they really prepared me for high school. High School actually seems easier than middle school. The teacher were very good on all points, and the student are very friendly and nice.

Friendship was an awesome school. They really helped the kids along and gave the correct punishments for the problems. A fight hardly broke out, and the hallways were clean and efficent. This school is a awesome school; No wonder they got the grant for the laptops
